Case study

I'm cutting it fine, but I wanted to fit in a card for the latest Case Study challenge, #6. The challenge was to case some aspect of a lovely card by Mariana Grigsby. I chose to case the layout, so this is what I came up with;

I still had the supplies out that I used for this card the other day, so used those. (Note to self - tidy up more often!) I combined the Case Study challenge with the latest Paper Crafts September gallery challenge to use text in a project. I stamped the tree image and then created a mask for it before stamping and embossing text across it. I think it adds a subtle texture to the focal point while still letting the simplicity of the lovely tree image shine. Here's a bit more detail:

Here's Mariana's card:

You're still having heaps of time to play, Debby! The challenge closes in 19 hours :) It's another perfect card of yours, with stunning bow & excellent tag, but the main image just beats it all! I love the subtle shading on the tree (I wonder if it was a planned effect...), and the text background... yum-o!
Thanks so much for playing again!
